Description

Phoenix is a genus of 13 species of palms, native from the Canary Islands east across northern and central Africa, the extreme southeast of Europe (Crete), and southern Asia from Turkey east to southern China and Malaysia. The diverse habitats they occupy include swamps, deserts, and mangrove sea coasts. Most Phoenix species originate in semiarid regions but usually occur near high groundwater levels, rivers or springs. The genus is unique among members of the subfamily Coryphoideae, being the only one with pinnate, rather than palmate leaves. The generic name derives from the Greek word for the date palm used by Theophrastus and Pliny the Elder. It most likely referred to the Phoenicians, Phoenix, the son of Amyntor and Cleobule in Homer's Iliad, or the Phoenix, the sacred bird of Ancient Egypt.
